I was looking through some old Little Golden books looking to see if we had any that my niece might like and I came across The Little Red Hen and I remember really liking this cute book when I was little and it being one of my favorite Little Golden Books it has nice pictures and is very simple and easy to read and perfect for a child just learning how to read.

I wish that every little child could read this charming book with its simple yet powerful message: "If you do all the work, you get to eat the bread." If more politicians had read this as children, we would be in better shape!

Format: Hardcover
This very cheerful story shows the childern that if they don't work they will not be able to reap the rewards. It is about a hen who finds a grain of wheat. She wants to grow the wheat but no one will help her, so she decides to do it all herself. the pictures are also very colorful and detailed. Everytime is see the pictures I see something new. this book is a must for young children because it teaches them responsability, and to do there share of the work. I really enjoyed this book and im sure your children will to.

Growing up my mom read this to me and my brother. I had forgotten how much I loved this story until we unearthed this book for my sons. Now they love it too! They loved it so much that I am forced to order another copy because my copy is worn out!

Hooray for the little red hen!
She teaches a fine moral, or work-ethic.
She does so in an enjoyable, repetitive way.
An imaginative reader can add animal noises, and suitable character voices for the lazy creatures who will NOT help, but who, like J. Wellington Wimpy, would gladly eat ... Great fun to read to young children!!
This is a classic, of course.

Let me add two comments.
First, maybe 100 years ago, versions of this story were used as reading primers.
If it worked then, it may work now.

Second, this is NOT the original version that Little Golden Books issued in the late 1940s.
Certainly the J.P. Miller pictures are delightful.
But so were the originals.
I do not have my childhood copy at hand to check, but Leonard Marcus's superb exploration of LBs, "Golden Legacy", p 52) lists, with cover art, the FIRST TWELVE LGBs, including, "The Little Red Hen", illustrated by Rudolf Freund, who also illustrated the first version of "The Animals of Farmer Jones", later a Tibor Gergely classic!
Why can't we have both versions?
Ditto for the early and later versions of "The New Baby", by the early Eloise Wilkin and the later Eloise Wilkin.

I love all Little Golden Books, especially the classics. I remember having this read to me when I was younger, and I was glad I was still able to buy it so I could read it to my child. This is a great story which goes along with great memories!

What a wondeful story about the values of sharing, working and team work! This story was one from my childhood. The lessons one can learn from it apply even more today than they did 50 years ago! This story and Little Butterball (which is no longer in print but should be)are timeless. Enjoy it with your child(ren) today!
